- Apex new home builders have had more requests for inclusion of a "make up" seating area in the Master Bath, between the two sink areas. This is usually placed at a slightly lower height, to allow comfortable use with a standard stool or chair. An open "window seat" style area can also be placed between the vanities, which allows separation of space.
